Gene Expression News and Research RSS Feed - Gene Expression News and Research

Gene Expression is the process by which a gene gets turned on in a cell to make RNA and proteins. Gene expression may be measured by looking at the RNA, or the protein made from the RNA, or what the protein does in a cell.

U-M researchers identify gene expression linked to gender differences in autoimmune diseases

U-M researchers identify gene expression linked to gender differences in autoimmune diseases

Women represent nearly 8 out of every 10 people with autoimmune diseases. Although the statistics are well-known, the scientific community is still trying to figure out why women's immune systems are more likely to become overactive and attack their own healthy cells. [More]

Research redefines role of Spop protein during bone development

Loss of a key protein leads to defects in skeletal development including reduced bone density and a shortening of the fingers and toes -- a condition known as brachydactyly. T [More]
Studies show how overactive immune response may contribute to heart disease in psoriasis patients

Studies show how overactive immune response may contribute to heart disease in psoriasis patients

Psoriasis is well-known for causing too many skin cells on elbows, knees, and across the body, but people living with psoriasis may also be at an increased risk of heart disease. [More]
